Crusoe Escape on Tibarama Island - Poindimie

Poindimie - Crusoe Escape on Tibarama Island

This island is a 10-minute cruise from the shore and is covered in century old trees that are quite exceptional.

After a light meal, have a wander around the island and discover the flora and fauna on the botanical path. On arrival back at the ‘campsite’, you can drink from green coconuts and share a non-alcoholic aperitif that will be waiting for you. You can participate in preparing the ‘outback’-style lunch: help build a campfire, husk and rasp a coconut to extract the liquid, make a raw-fish salad, or look after the barbecue.

 

You will be initiated to the traditional fishing techniques which involve casting the net, laying the fishing net and driving the fish into a net.

 

Your guide will show you how to climb a coconut tree and then it will be your turn to have a go, if you want!
 

It is possible to rent snorkelling equipment in advance.
